Leh we make Salone grow! The President’s Recovery Priorities Newsletter | www.presidentsrecoverypriorities.gov.sl | August 2016 The President’s Recovery Priorities represent a multi-stakeholder investment programme, led by the Government of Sierra Leone, focused on education, energy, governance, health, private sector development, social protection and water. The programme is intended to drive sustainable socio-economic transformation in Sierra Leone following the twin shocks of the Ebola Virus Epidemic and falling iron ore prices. Message from Saidu Conton-Sesay, the Chief of Staff Welcome to the first issue of ‘Leh we make Salone grow’. Our regular newsletter is intended to help keep you informed about the progress of the President’s Recovery Priorities. We started tracking delivery of the second phase of the process in June 2016. To date, most of our work has been behind the scenes – planning, researching, conducting training and setting up the systems that will support development in areas of education, energy, governance, health, private sector development, social welfare and water. However, there is also increasing visibility to the progress that is being made. The Anti-Corruption Commission is rolling out its new ‘Pay No Bribe’ on-line reporting mechanism, which will allow ordinary citizens to add momentum to the attack on corruption in the public sector. In the months to come, we can expect a more productive rice harvest following the Ministry of Agriculture’s nationwide rice seed and fertiliser distribution initiative, combined with training in improved farming techniques. The nationwide Water Point Mapping survey will provide critically important data which will support the provision of safe drinking water to 700,000 people in the provinces. More trained midwives in our hospitals and health centres takes us closer to our commitment to reduce maternal and child mortality rates. The support of our development partners continues to be important to our success. In July’s Development Partner Committee meeting, it was encouraging to hear the World Bank country director commend the President’s Recovery Priorities for progress to date, and highlight in particular the positive effects of the cash transfer system which he had seen first hand in Moyamba. We continue to encourage a participatory approach to the process which is anchored in transparency and we are working on providing information on our progress through the use of the traditional media, social media, this newsletter, and our website www.presidentsrecoverypriorities.gov.sl, as well as direct community engagement. In the near future, a nationwide radio programme will improve the information-flow to our rural and hard to reach communities. By 30th June 2017, the Government intends to have delivered 142 sub-initiatives that will combine to create a visible and positive difference for everyone across Sierra Leone. Our dedicated delivery team has the responsibility of driving the recovery process, but its success also depends on engagement and feedback from stakeholders across the country. The delivery of the President’s Recovery Priorities is not business as usual. This is a unique opportunity for our country’s development.
